"Four More Years"

The cry of "Four more years" is not for President Obama's reelection. It's the wait for significant help under health reform.

From 2011-2013 CBO projects 6 million people go off Medicaid & CHIP. From 2008 to 2010 26 million lose employer sponsored health insurance (from Census & CBO projections). America's legions of uninsureds aren't going away anytime soon.

A progressive blogger referred to clearly the intentional plan as a "blunder". Backpedaling isn't pretty by either party, Red or Blue. Who knew Vice President Joe Biden's "f-ing incredible" was for the snail's pace of implementation?

Update: President Obama spoke in Portland, Maine. His message: "It could take four years for the full overhaul to take hold."
